    Look no further you will fall in love with this ge

    We had the best day at The Walled Garden yesterday despite some fairly rubbish weather . Jan and the team have been amazing from start to finish and every thing was perfect . We had an afternoon tea wedding and our guests said it was so refreshing to have such a laid back casual wedding. I would recommend this venue to any couple looking for a stunning venue at a reasonable price .

    Best day and venue ever

    We got married here at the end of July. It is such a beautiful venue. The gardens were in full bloom and looked lovely.
    We were so lucky with the weather the sun was out but had cooled out so we didn't melt in the gardens.
    From the time of booking to the day we got married Jan was improving the venue. Jan and Mike were helpful and welcoming whenever we visited or contacted them. The men often talked sport as there was some football or cricket game on when we visited.
    The venue allowed for a relax reception and all the guests have commented saying it was the best location. There is a good balance of space inside and out. The fact the the tables are in a separate room to the band/music means people can still stay sitting and talking and don't have to shout over the music.
    Jan has a good list of suppliers to help you choose or you can bring your own in as long as they have all the relevant insurances etc.
    I wouldn't have changed a thing, and will make sure I carry on visiting these gardens for all the great memories.

    Thank you Jan and Mike xx

    Intimate and informal

    Dear Jan and Mike
    We just wanted to say a huge thank you to you both for making our wedding day so very special. Your unique Walled Garden was every bit as gorgeous as we had hoped, and the time and effort you took to make it ‘our’ event was much appreciated.
    Having everyone gathered around the rose arbour and fountain made it seem much more intimate and informal, and matched the tone of our wedding perfectly so we can highly recommend it. We have had lots of lovely comments from our guests about the venue as a whole, both outside and inside spaces; the gardens were truly magical and we are purposely took time during the day to have a bit of ‘us’ time in which to enjoy such gorgeous surroundings.
    Your supplier list was also really useful – we cannot recommend Zoe Collyer, Buns to Banquets or Angel like Flowers highly enough without going into rambling lists of adjectives – suffice to say they understood our brief exactly and got the level of detail we were looking for, but made the whole admin side of the wedding enjoyable with perfection on the day…
    We’re still on cloud nine, and will definitely be back down to see you soon – starting and then ending our wedding ‘week’ in the Walled Garden seemed very apt.
    Many thanks to you both and indeed all of your team once again.
